"tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE interviewed by Matt Aelmore"
On March 15, 2014, my friend the composer/musician Matt Aelmore interviewed me for possible use for an online journal called Contemporaneity at the University of Pittsburgh where he's a student. At the time of the interview he was very busy with schoolwork & the deadline for the target issue passed. After that, we both let it slide & the management of the journal changed to people who were possibly less interested in what Matt had to offer.
The interview largely centers around Neoism, a subject that I have almost no interest in at the moment but one that's been important to me at various times in my life. Neoism Now & Then! as I like to half-heartedly 'exclaim'. In fact, to anyone who may be associating themselves with a movement I advise that you also make sure to disassociate yourself too so that you don't become overly-pigeonholed. A common, but to my mind unfortunate, side-effect of being associated with a movement is that whatever you do may become associated with the movement regardless of how inappropriate that may be.
However, the interview is more wide-ranging than that & touches on my philosophy, Mail Art, the banality of pictures as an art-form. Anything is Anything, time, mms, PHEW!, Modern Dance, critical reading, Generic Tours, etc.
